Anyone involved in the real estate and property industry especially within the planning and
development stage has a good share of responsibility to factor in the environment. After all, the lifespan of a home does not just end when a buyer has been secured. Instead, every conscious effort must be made to reduce the unhealthy environmental impact of the building itself, along with all those who will use it for as long as it stands.
To achieve this aim set above, the home needs to be designed with the latest in renewable
technology. Like we know, renewable technology is one of the main ways to get the environment to breathe and get strong. Doing so will give the property the best chance of remaining as eco-friendly as possible. This is since comprehensive improvements will not need to be made to bring it in line with current environmental targets.
In recent years, the renewables market has grown at a lightning pace due to factors like cost
benefits and environmental factors. Here are some of the top renewable energy picks to
consider for anyone involved in the home building or buying process.
Solar roof panels have long been the best standard choice for renewable energy, particularly in older homes. However, a business giant Tesla founder Elon Musk has now developed an
innovative technology solar roof tiles, which take the technology one step further, by integrating the ability to harness solar power within the roof tile itself.
The launch is expected soon enough, with homeowners currently able to put down a deposit on Tesla roof tiles. As you might expect, since it’s a new technology that is better than the existing one in multiple ways, the cost far exceeds that of a regular roof and even solar panels, costing £16.71 per square foot. However, given a new roof can last decades, the technology will pay for itself over time. And in fact, Save Costs in the long run.
Roofs aren’t just capable of heating both our rooms and our water too. The two main needs of
daily energy Solar water heating can either be supplied by evacuated tubes that are placed over the existing roof tiles or fixed place collectors, which could also be placed on the roof or
integrated into the roof space itself.
By also minimizing any north-facing developments in real estate wherever possible, this will also mean living spaces feel less cold in general, which will reduce the need to heat them.
While it’s easy to focus on energy efficiency changes within the home itself, what about getting the same energy to and from your home?
It’s no secret that diesel vehicles are on their way out, increased prices & more pollution being
the reasons, in line with efforts to combat climate change. By 2025, it’s safely estimated that
20% of vehicles will be electric. Expect that number to shoot up sharply once the diesel ban
comes into force in 2030.
